That would be my father ironing my husbands pants…after I clearly failed at ironing them myself #luckyhusband #awesomedad
Now, I’m not one to ever endorse a product but I must say for anyone who is A) prone to dry skin and B) very lazy about putting on lotion to relieve this dry skin, there is a solution! I will be the first to admit when I heard about this “miracle bar”- as I like to call it - because it resembles a bar of soap, I had my reservations. Let’s be real; how is it possible to not ever have to put a single drop of lotion on after showering and still have rich moist skin for the entire day. Enter, Lush product: King of Skin.
The name really does say it all. It is the “king” of dry skin! Now, I was by no means the Christopher Columbus of finding this product. I have to give my friend Cheekiee credit for that find. Who knows your dry skin issues better than your best friend (maybe your husband, but let’s face it, he is no use in that department).
How does this King of Skin exactly work you ask? Why let me tell you. Physically it looks like a bar soap, but don’t you dare rub it on you in the shower and try to rinse it off! All you do is, after your done showering and before you step out and grab a towel, wet the bar and rub it over you and then just dry yourself off as normal with your towel. Simple enough. No need for a King of Skin for Dummies manual here.
I decided to use this bar for a good month before writing this entry just to make sure it could pass the “Payal test”. If any bar can moisturize my dry skin and those of you who know me, know exactly how dry my skin is, then this is it! Jay is finally happy that he no longer has softer skin than his wife. I won’t lie, it was pretty sad that he ha
Now here is the downside – pricewise, it can get a little expensive if you plan on using it on a daily basis because the bar does dwindle away pretty quick. Each bar cost about $14. Just think about how dry your skin is and how lazy you are. In my case, when a bottle of lotion is as foreign to me as Turkish bathhouse, I’ll pay the price.

Sounds like a “getting ready” routine for any typical winter workday right? Too bad it’s the 2nd day of Spring!! (the bold was absolutely necessary) That’s right my friends, it is the second day of spring and the low tomorrow is going to 36. I know back in December I was complaining about being able to wear flip flops to the mall and desperately looking for old man winter so I could get my Christmas on, but seriously now!
Payal is tired of being bundled up like like an Eskimo. Granted my summer attire doesn’t change too too much from my winter wardrobe. But, at least it can warm up enough to where I can trade out the wool coat for my North Face fleece! Jaykishan is going to die of a heatstroke, clearly not from the weather, but one more night of enduring my personal space heater blasting on hight at 85 degrees and he’s a goner!
Texas doesn’t really have many seasons but the two weeks of what we like to call “spring” before the “let’s make cookies on our dashboards” weather sets in, is very important to us Texans! At this rate, we will be bipolaring(I do not believe that is a word, but I may have just created it) right into chocolate chip cookie dough.
And that Mother Nature, is my open complaint to you. Bring us some warm weather!
March Madness was actually the theme of Pooja and Vinay’s wedding. Very fitting, in a good madness kind of way. Once we wrapped up our LA tour we headed to the wedding festivities. What followed was 3 days of pure madness (if doing the Harlem Garba is any indication for what the weekend was like)
I won’t bore with details of the wedding but again, here are my bulleted highlights.
Less than two weeks in and we are deep into Payal’s world of March Madness!
We started off the month with the epic wedding of the year in Los Angeles - Pooja and Vinay and last week we went from a wedding to a baby shower - Welcome Baby Bhakta which resulted in a much needed Longhorn Reunion!
Since there is some ground to cover here, I’ve decide to split this entry up into separate parts.
I wont waste time with fluff, so let’s get right into the details.We flew to LA a day early so we could get some sight seeing in before the wedding festivities. Below are my bulleted highlights.
More to come in Part 2 (the epic wedding!)
It’s definitely been a while since I last visited SoCal(hope I got the wanna be cool spelling right). I may have been LA born but definitely not LA raised. I do like to come back and visit what could have been my playground.
Every trip to LA is usually for a family event, sometimes it really is true, you have to have family event to make certain trips. Lucky for me my travel loving husband made sure we got at least a day in for some sightseeing.
The wedding festivities start on Friday, but we’ll spend tomorrow taking in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. I’ll be honest, I’m super excited about going to Hollywood and seeing the walk of fame and driving through Rodeo Drive and taking in the sights of all my favorite designers window fronts. Please Note: I said window fronts, I did not say taking in actual shopping sprees of these high end stores. Rest easy Jay. Your bank account is safe.
I’m equally just as excited about Pooja’s wedding. There hasn’t been a family wedding thats’ brought us all together in quite some time so I’m really looking forwarding to seeing everyone. Living two time zones away, I also don’t get see everyone as much I’d like so it’ll be nice to catch up!
On that note, time to board!
